The districts with the largest populations of homeless youth are Portland Public Schools, with 1,509 students, and Beaverton School District with even more at 1,522.
In total, there were 8,253 students reported homeless in the 25 school districts in Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas counties. That’s several hundred more than last year.
The data is from the 2016-17 school year and uses the federal definition of homeless, which can include children doubled-up with other families or other temporary housing.
